Dr. Susan Myers visits French classes at South Valley Junior High School

Title page of Dr. Myers's Presentation

Friday, November 5, 2010, Dr. Susan Myers, French professor at Jewell, visited Ms. Barb Adam's 8th and 9th grade French classes. Students were in their first or second year of studying French. Through a PowerPoint presentation filled with pictures and images of French art, they learned about the plastic arts in France. They recognized ceramic pieces, appreciated cubist sculpture and learned how to read stories depicted in paintings and tapestries. They learned how to determine the message conveyed in a photograph. They reviewed elements of Gothic architecture and stained glass windows, ending the day by coloring their own stained glass windows designs. It was a great day meeting all of Ms. Adam's students. They were very welcoming and joined willingly into the activities. Dr. Myers enjoyed meeting the French teachers at South Valley and conversing with them in French over lunch and throughout the day.

Thank you, South Valley JH, for a great day!
